The EDGE MC1400 provides operators the ability to extract impurities from highly contaminated material in just one pass. Utilizing controlled air as a separation medium, the MC1400 is said to be the ideal solution for the cleaning of compost and biomass fractions with its ability to separate heavy and mid-weight fractions from lights. The MC1400 allows operators to separate commodities into four different fractions as standard; lights (plastic, paper, film) mid-weight (wood) and heavy fractions (aggregate, glass, etc.). Ferrous metal is extracted via the overband magnet found on the heavy fraction discharge conveyor with the option of attaching an additional magnet to the mid-weight conveyor. With an increase feed in size of up to 400mm (16 in), the MC1400 is not only ideal for organic recycling and biomass fraction but also construction and demolition waste. Material is loaded onto the MC1400’s wide, variable speed feed conveyor which provides an even spread of material for efficient separation. Material is transferred into the enclosed separation chamber where the system of upward and suction blowers separates the material into four final products. With easily adjustable components allowing the operator to quickly change air speed, air flow rate, feed conveyor belt speed and drum positioning, the MC1400 has the capacity to handle a wide range of applications.
